Life has been moving pretty quickly these days: Harlow is too.
My girl has the most infectious giggle you ever did hear.
Her smile uses every face muscle + lights up the room.
The hair growing on her head is strawberry blonde + couldn’t be cuter.
I’m so in love.
Last night as we read before bed, she was antsy + animated: never really sitting still or quiet for each book. That is, until we read together from her Jesus Storybook Bible.
She got quiet.
We read page, after page: full of words + few pictures.
She listened, even though I know most of it she still doesn’t understand.
We read about Jesus + children. We read about how we can pray + just have a conversation with Him.
I told her that God loves her sweet voice.
Then I asked her if she wanted to pray. She looked at me + grabbed both of my hands in hers.
And this momma prayed for her little girl, with tears in her eyes, audibly asking for His protection + blessing over her. Silently asking that He would help me not screw it up. That I would put Him before all. My husband before my kids. + my kids before the long list of to-do’s.
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:14 NLT
I’m still in awe that He’s entrusted her to us. Lord, I don’t want to mess this up.
Psst! This morning I decided to link up with Allison + the Parent’hood. Join me + check it out!
